Axed: The Moodys

US adaptation of Aussie comedy ends at two seasons.

FOX has cancelled the US adaptation of The Moodys after two seasons.

The series, based on the Aussie original, starred Denis Leary, Elizabeth Perkins, Francois Arnaud, Chelsea Frei, Jay Baruchel, Maria Gabriela de Faria, Gerry Dee and Josh Segarra.

According to Variety, the comedy got off to a decent start at FOX in its first season, which was centered on Christmas and played up as a holiday event series. But its rating fell in the second season, essentially halving what the show averaged in the first.

The Jungle Entertainment original A Moody Christmas, created by Trent O’Donnell and Phil Lloyd, first ran on ABC in 2012. A subsequent season The Moodys screened in 2014.

The US version written by comedy veterans Bob Fisher, Rob Greenberg and Tad Quill retained Jungle’s Trent O’Donnell, Phil Lloyd and Jason Burrows as executive producers.

The Moodys screens in Australia on Stan.
